In this paper a method for extracting objects from meteorological stereo satellite images and matching parts of them is presented. Great emphasis is put on the choice of the threshold value for object extraction. The matching method is based on a modal matching algorithm: the objects to be matched are sampled and ideally turned into elastic objects. A finite element method allows computing modes of vibration for such elastic body. By comparing displacements due to vibrations in each point from both pictures it is possible to match corresponding parts in the two different viewpoints.
